Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

My '77 a few years back. It is torn down for rebuild of front end w/a PST kit. The a stock crossmember is sectioned 1" was purchased from a member here a few year back to be added. Another 2" is planned for the frame whether it is 'Z'd" or notched where the crossmember bolt to. The spindle/coil drop seen in the pix has the lower A-arms 3" from the pavement. Need to put back 1" for peace of mind. The '72 455 Old has been rebuilt: .030 over KB pistons balanced to within grams/Pro Comp heads shaved deck & heads for true 10 to 1 compression/Custom ground Clay Smith Cam/roller rockers/rebuilt 400 turbo 2500 Hughes Stall/rebuilt 9" 3.40 posi. Dual tanks Air/Cruise/Tilt is the intention of being a interstate hauler. It was purchased 30 years ago from the OG farmer in Arkansas.

Can you send me/post the specs on those wheels? Specifically width and backspacing, and tire size? Thats pretty much the look I'm going for (with 17" wheels) - I have the rear backspacing figured out, I am pretty sure, but the front is where I'm getting hung up. Looks great!
